Colorado General: 126 reviews and 97 photos
Favorite thing: In August of 1859 two surveyors from Denver came upon a beautiful area of sandstone formations.
"M. S. Beach, who related this incident, suggested that it would be a 'capital place for a beer garden' when the country grew up. His companion, Rufus Cable, a 'young and poetic man', exclaimed, 'Beer Garden! Why it is a fit place for the Gods to assemble. We will call it the Garden of the Gods.' It has been so called ever since."
